Sin % (Site of 1950 



THE Class of 1920 fares forth into a jaundiced world. To keep the balance 
between chauvinism and internationalism is the brave task it has to confront. 
Medio tutissimus ibis. Any Red excess will, of course, be followed by anarchy 
if successful, by repression and reaction if not. And any suppression of personal liberties 
to which long and long-cherished and inculcated tradition has accustomed us — free 
speech, free press, the pursuit of happiness — in our own way and not by the dictates of 
the propagandist who can command a majority at the psychological moment — any sup- 
pression of those liberties means reversion to the medievalism against which democracy 
fought the late war, and either quiescence there or beginning the struggle over again. 
It may be true that patriotism causes all wars; it is none the less true that patriotism 
is an instinct and not merely a fomented passion, if a monster, then a monster to be 
curbed and guided lest it take the bit into its teeth. It may be, too, that the 
time is ripe to obliterate national boundaries and fuse the world into a cohesive unit. 
If so, woe to the refractory. Or it may be that one Monroe Doctrine clearly defined 
and backed to the limit can do more than a thousand iridescent Leagues of Nations 
toward the achievement of peace. There are judicious minds who hesitate between the 
two, and the choice is a grave responsibility. To join issue because of the weight of 
this or that authority, or even because of this or that persuasion, unless it be founded 
on more than instinct or prejudice, is frivolous and may be fatal. And yet, to waive 
the choice is worse; it is to court the fate which, when the Class of 1920 was entering 
college, pessimists feared our country might incur, the fate of those angels "who were 
not rebellious, nor were faithful to God, but for themselves were." 

It is safe (and easy) to say we want the utmost liberty consistent with stability 
and the utmost breadth consistent with that veneration for our own history and 
institutions and love for our country which is called patriotism and which is as natural 
as hunger or thirst or human love. To define the limits and to keep within them is 
the task — old as the world, but more than ever now concrete and imminent — which 
awaits the Class of 1920.

as willing male cousins as Ruth has. 

Our idea of the original Cheerful Cherub is Ruth. When 
the rest of us despair at the burdens of life in general and 
Senior struggles in particular, Ruth feels called upon to act as 
the one and only Simmons disciple of the man who started 
that theory about a "Mile of Smiles."

Joyce Backus 

"There's no place like home!" 

If you should ask Joyce to name the principal divisions of 
the country she would reply, "The State of Washington and — 
everything outside the State of Washington." New England, 
with all its delightful uncertainties of weather, temperature, and 
so forth, has failed unutterably to make its surprises felt 
upon her; she is impervious to them all. We have visions of 
Joyce clutching her little S. B. to her heart and rushing madly 
to get the first train to Tacoma. Perhaps it was for the best 
that she decided to come to Simmons: loyalty to one's native 
town is a good thing, and had she never deserted hers, she 
might never have realized how much it really meant to her.

"Lou" "Wese" 

With measured tread Louise walks down the hall and into 
a first hour class ten minutes late. You might as well try to 
hurry the sun in its course as attempt to get any speed into her 
except at breakfast, when we are forced to admit she has it, 
though we know not from whence it comes. While her class- 
mates cram at night, Lou with the air of "Languid Lydia" 
peruses a Vogue or cuts a dress out by guesswork, and then 
the next day instead of fulfilling their predictions by failing 
utterly, she makes a brilliant recitation. How she does it still 
remains an unsolved mystery. And when she talks with that 
naive and childlike manner ascribed to those who belong to the 
class of "baby vamps," absolutely no man is safe.

If Maria were not numbered among the conscientious, she 
would never have had the dignified and honored position of

man houses is undoubtedly responsible for her ability to set 
a good example, for she never begins to be noisy before ten — 
but waits religiously until after that hour. Her inevitable

"O give me new figures! I can't go on dancing 
The same that were taught me ten seasons ago," 

Did you know that the Dolly Sisters had started proceedings

ing offer the most strenuous competition to the famous terp- 
sichorean artists. Indeed, a "Gillingman" performance illus- 
trates perfectly what the poet meant when he referred to 
thistledown, fairy feet, etc. 

And in spite of the above, in such disgustingly practical classes 
as Statistics and Business Methods, Ernestine displays an expres- 
sion of profound thought and concentration that is the envy of 
her more feeble-minded colleagues, whose Logic carries them only 
to the fact that "all men are mortal, no hen is a man, therefore 
no hen is mortal," the which, while it gives one bright gleam 
in the fresh egg situation, still leaves something to be desired 
in regard to the deductive method of reasoning.

Elsa Marie Birkner 

"I love to be alone. 1 never found the companion 
that was so companionable as solitude." 

The bright lights have no lure for Elsa ; she prefers rather 
the softer light of her library at home and all it suggests: a 
big, cozy chair, a book, or perhaps two, and — quiet. Her 
capacities for such pursuits must have been well trained, for 
it is said that she devoured at one gulp the lengthy tomes of 
the Continental Lit. shelf and found them mere child's play. In 
spite of her disregard for society, however, the mad, merry tales 
of her more frivolous associates meet with a sympathetic ear. 
Elsa has one constant companion: this is her Boston bag, which 
never leaves her for a moment. Can it be the bag's kindred 
capacity for books that incites her love for its company? The 
attraction is otherwise inexplicable.

Argument number one in refutation of the commonly ac-

melancholy thought wave after another" — Mildred can and 
does see the funny side of everything, from the bluffing of her 
classmates (she never has to indulge) to an exam in Library 
Economy as practised in the time of Hammurabi. To wit, a 
girl who can claim membership in the Academy and simultane- 
ously retain the curl in her hair merits our profound admiration 
and respect. Yet the following fact is significant: judging from 
Mildred's vicinity to a certain summer resort, we suspect that 
the humorous side of her nature received its early development 
in that great emporium of hilarity — Revere's famous Pit!

If we should attempt Byron's division of society into the

instead of into Simmons, it's just possible that she might have 
developed ere now into a first-class vamp. Who knows?

enjoys the distinction of being the sole member of her school

Because she has one of those far famed and much talked

too. Capability is a chief ingredient in her character, and with 
that in mind we expect her to do something big -when she

Of course Mary always liked Simmons, but now that the

the kernel of this barren shell of a world. Perhaps that is 
why she sighs like a furnace and looks unutterable things. She 
is partial to chemistry and cooking, though claimed by the

tell her she's "fatally beautiful and having killing eyes." She

The truth of this statement became at some time so apparent 
to Dorothy that she decided to be on the safe side in the 
matter — and straightway found the "bounds of social life" so 
truly pleasing that she has never had the heart to regret her 
action. Still, there must have been a period in her life when 
the social instinct was not all-prevailing, for she has some- 
how found time to peruse practically every book for children 
that was ever written. We have only one fault to find with 
you, Dotty, and that is that you kept us waiting for three whole

although of course on Saturday mornings knights were lack-

It is fortunate that the Secretarial Department in its efforts 
to be businesslike has not installed that bane of the working- 
girl, the time-clock, else we fear that Connie's degree would be 
like unto the sadly wrecked pay envelopes of those who agree 
that "It's nice to get up in the morning, but it's nicer to stay in 
bed." However, though she has not acquired the art of arriving 
at a nine o'clock class on time, she has mastered that of entering 
the room with an air of superb nonchalance. But all this does 
not go to prove that "Connie" lacks energy, for as President 
of the Newman Club she has demonstrated an unfailing supply 
of it, and her conversational ability is undisputed, in fact her 
friends say that unless restrained she would go on and on 
ad infinitum.

"So modest plainness sets off sprightly ivit." 

Here is a girl for whom we had high hopes, in her we 
placed our utmost confidence, and it was she that we expected 
would have "the pearl of great price," the best job — nay, let 
us say position — offered by the Secretarial Department, pre- 
sented to her on a golden platter. But, friends, this was at 
the end of Junior year. During Senior year, we could imagine 
her in any position from that of cash girl up to the Assistant 
of the United States Mint. Now, at the end of Senior year, 
we are totally upset. Our hopes, our trust, our faith in her 
becoming President of the League of Efficient Business Women 
all have been shattered, and we foresee our idol of efficiency 
managing not the United States Steel Corporation but a very 
successful home. Yet, she has not forsaken the Secretarial 
School entirely, for she proves her allegiance when she pours 
forth inspired words of rage against that evil of evils, "Sim- 
mons Efficiency for $18 per."

lot of other things besides. Among these, her histrionic achieve- 
ments speak for themselves. There's just one thing that puzzles 
us — her recitations being what they are in quality, why does 
Bea so persistently utilize her risible propensities with the 
evident purpose of diverting her instructors' attention from

A cat may look at a king, and a Bostonian may look at a

characterized by long blank spaces the last day before each

The tilt of the hat and the exact height of the French heels 
are such as only a Manhattan native can acquire, and our idea 
of "Simmons as She Isn't" is Lucy making her regular holiday 
appearance in "The Return of the Native." 

Besides this gift — and it is a gift, you know — Lucy has one 
of the smoothest dispositions we know, as well as a smile

dered with pathos — but we don't want to! No, nor have we 
had to, for where there is music, there also is Harriette, 
whether she is commandeering an orchestra at one of our 
frivolous functions, playing up-to-date melodies as an accom- 
paniment to her classmates' valiant efforts at a '20 song rally, 
or executing with fitting solemnity the hymns at Wednesday

perament peculiar to those of musical inclination, but is blessed 
with a practical mind and a penchant system and methodical 
methods. This is the secret of her capability, and proof of it 
lies beyond in the Advertising Section. If this does not answer 
the question, "Is she efficient?" go to some poor, haunted Ad- 
vertising Manager who has been finally convinced by Miss 
Gordon that his firm will go to rack and ruin unless he safe-

The question was once put to him, how we ought to behave 
to our friends, and the answer he gave was, "As we should 
wish our friends to behave to us." 

1919 was certainly out of luck when Al decided to abandon 
Simmons last year to go out into the cold, cold world, and 
1920 was decidedly in luck when she decided to return this 
year as one of us. 1920 is a bit jealous of Al's erstwhile class 
for the opportunity it had of knowing her, for a girl with a 
personality and whose chief ingredients are good nature and a 
keen sense of humor should not be unknown to a single one of 
us.

Vivian presents the strange phenomenon of not only being 
able to think for herself, but — and what is more — of putting

proved indispensable in meeting the demands of those eternal

defined ever since Freshman year, when she renounced the 
Library course to join the ranks of Science. Though her in- 
terests cover the whole field of phylogenesis, we might add 
that she has found the subject of man in his present state of 
development such a compelling one that she has resolved to 
concentrate her attention upon it "from this time henceforth."

"Aye, lad, he's Scotch." Then, too, there are those Saturday af-

When Izzie's head goes nodding over those ponderous tomes,

but not postage stamps, so accordingly she set out not for a 
bank, but for the post office, smiled sweetly at the caged clerk, 
gave him a beseeching glance together with the stamps, and 
money was hers. 'Twas not a case of "Take back your gold," 
but rather "Take back your postage stamps." Just to prove 
how clever Izzie is, we wish to inform the public, that as a 
reward of merit in Physics 2, she had the honor of silvering 
a mirror conferred upon her, while the rest of the class never 
so much as set eyes upon one.

Again we are forced to utter that trite but true remark, 
"Appearances are deceiving," for we have discovered another

that "wit" is a chief ingredient in the personality of the young

finding out the truth long ere this, because Mildred has not 
been with us during the entire career of 1920. Also there

We'd say, just offhand, and positively not for publication, 
that Eleanor has a pretty bright future ahead of her. She'd 
make a corker secretary, and just as good a wife in our 
humble opinion. That she may have success and happiness 
anyway, is the wish of 1920.

increase to an alarming degree when she is witnessed play-

frenzied forward within an inch of her life in a basketball

flaw in the high grade of her recitations. There may be a 
few misguided persons who still think of the office of Student 
Government President as being chiefly one of honor ; we who 
have had an intimate view of it no longer doubt that it is the 
most stringent form of unpaid labor that exists; hence our 
love and admiration for Kim are ever on the increase. Is it 
any wonder that we are proud to place her first in 1920's Hall 
of Fame?

Margaret Curtis Kingsley 

"Imitation is the sincerest flattery." 
The power of imitation is one that should not be kept sub- 
merged, but Margaret has hidden her talent in this line from 
the majority of us, and from all account we are heavy losers. 
According to reports, North Hall is put into an uproar when 
she imitates and restraint is unavailing when she goes so 
far as to make her dear teachers the victims of her clever- 
ness. Perhaps she fears that were she to make public this 
art, she might lose the respect of her classmates. But, she 
would not, for she has won that and it will never be lo*t.

"Dot" 

"The grandest thing on earth, character." 

Dot is another whose wild enthusiasm for "the profession" 
was sensibly cooled by the introduction of that heart-rending 
source of nightmare — the thousand dollar budget. Yet, judg- 
ing from her efficiency in other lines of development, we 
doubt if it is destined to cast a permanent blight upon her 
life. While the rest of us chafed silently under a working 
schedule, more truth than poetry, Dot, fired to eloquence by 
her course in public speaking, conducted a campaign of re- 
volt, which convinced us that it would take more than a 
mere Faculty to put anything over on her and get away with 
it. She is an adept in the art of squelching, whether it be the 
limousined ladies who reside on Beacon Street, or the refractory 
youths who come to dances and leave their savoir vivre at 
home. Nevertheless, this frankness is one of Dot's most charm- 
ing qualities. But it's by no means her only one!

Lucille Mae Lapp 

"Lu" 

"She had the genius to be loved." 

"Off with the old, on with the new" is a maxim that Lu 
follows absolutely. One week at Dartmouth Carnival and the 
next at a Tech house party — just as soon her friends get 
one devoted swain's name down pat, it's another "he." And 
yet, with all her frivolity she can make a French seam as well 
as she can float through the mazes of the dance, and strange 
as it may seem, her popularity is not confined to the opposite 
sex. When there is work to be done, Lu does it, whether it 
is laboring over pongee samples or toiling on almost any com- 
mittee from artistic decoration to menial clean-up. If you 
want a good-looking hat in fifteen minutes or a good-looking 
man in the same time, go to Lu, for she never fails to produce 
either.

"77/£ reason firm, the temperate will, 
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill." 

A frenzied writer of write-ups, gasping and puffing, reached 
the Library. Secluding herself unobtrusively in the darkest 
possible corner accompanied only by Hoyt's Encyclopedia of 
Practical Quotations, she began a hunt, the object of which was 
a little gem that would contain "efficiency" and thus apply to 
Helen. But, 'twould seem that efficiency is not exactly a 
poetic word, so we had to fall back on "strength and skill." 
In "tapping the typewriter" Helen is just about as skillful as 
she is when she dances, and if you've ever seen her dance, 
you'll know what we mean. 

You never hear much about it, but somehow or other, Helen 
is generally there with the goods. We can hand her a great

It is rumored that North Hall is petitioning for another tele-

of the excitement in life is gone when every time the phone 
rings, the inevitable "Miss Lurio" is called out. Not only 
does she monopolize the telephone but she also keeps the parlor 
constantly occupied with members of the other sex, and when 
people ask the reason why, we reply, "Have you ever seen 
Adaline decked out in gorgeous finery, or above all have you 
ever heard her render 'Sahara' or 'Dardanella' with deep

Helen Theresa Lynch 

"Lilli" 
"/ am not only witty myself but the cause that ivit is in others." 
The young lady with the s, s, and g grin, gentle reader, is 
Lilli Putian, attempting by this coy method of camouflage to 
dispel that vision of lettuce leaves and scrub brushes with 
which two consecutive Mic shows have surrounded her. In 
real life she is 1920's Royal High Gloom Dispeller and 
Chief Purveyor of Wit. 

Not until this year, however, did we realize that her his- 
trionic talents aimed at more cultured parts. Her portrayals 
of the psycho-analytic wife and of the maiden aunt made us 
fear for Ethel Barrymore's laurels. But unlike most celebri- 
ties who have acquired great weight in college activities, our 
Helen is not at all a difficult person to approach. Despite her 
station in life (which is for the most part Dudley St.), she 
has a way with the Freshmen that is excelled by only one 
other member of her class. 

Recently, if not with joyful feet, at least with one foot of 
joy, Lilli fell to a flat conviction regarding the laws of gravity 
in Room 328. 

But behind all this barrage of nonsense, Helen hides a heart 
the size of which has not been measured ; and to mention 
more obvious gifts, she has a pair of blue Irish eyes which, 
to speak with the words of the great philosopher, Itchaway, 
make any man feel that he "don't know the half of it."

is absolutely sure of and that is "Belasco is the best pro- 
ducer," and we are equally certain that her disposition and

of rapidity of speech, and you have a faint idea, yea, very 
faint, of her line. And then her dancing! — but here words fail

"And I'm so tired of it all!" 
Anna is one of our most dashing secretaries — dashing in 
every sense of the word, from the nonchalant way she dashes 
into 9.55 classes promptly at 10 o'clock to the way she dashes 
off copy for Mic. 

In spite of this habit, she always does "get there." While 
the rest of us groan over three extra pages in Hayes, Anna acts 
as the "efficient, capable, tactful business manager" of Mic 
and at the same time holds two positions in town. 

We used to think the S. C. on Anna's ring stood for the 
same thing it means to the rest of us, "Simmons Celibate," 
but her recent debut into Harvology society, and her nightly 
appearances on Mr. Copley's Piazza have led us to believe 
otherwise. Being one of a large family certainly has its ad- 
vantages — it teaches one how to handle crowds. Speaking of 
rings, reminds one, of course, of bells — and that's the real

Judging from Ruth's recitations, we venture to state that 
her pursuance of that curious will-o'-the-wisp called "Knowl- 
edge" has been far from vain. Her amazing familiarity with 
things Biblical is second only to her superiority in things liter- 
ary. Though not sharing our uproarious idea of "humor," she 
enjoys her own little laugh (more often at our expense) in due 
season. You owe it to 1920, Ruth, and incidentally to your- 
self, to cease hoarding those unpublished manuscripts off- 
handedly dubbed "Yarns." You can't always keep it from the 
world, you know ; sooner or later it will leak out that you are

One of these "interests" is her faithful attendant on the eight

explains why the pangs of commuting have left so slight a 
trace on her nature. Grace's calm poise is enough to make us 
green-eyed, one and all; nevertheless, we'd give a good deal

"Peg" 

"To ///:0.?£ who know thee not, no words can paint, 
And those who know thee, know all words are faint." 
Even the Muse of Microcosm is forced to lay down her 
pen in despair at the attempt to do justice in mere words to 
her who for one-half of its existence — and by far the most 
difficult half, that of the beginning and the close of its career — 
has piloted the Class of 1920 on its way. Her credit must 
speak for itself, where words fail. Athletics, music, dra- 
matics, social activities — all have felt the inspiration of 
Peg's share in them. Be it a tennis racket or the scepter 
of office, she wields both with equal success. To say what 
her influence in the class has meant would verge on the 
sentimental. Her supreme modesty, in the face of all she 
accomplishes, is a thing at which we shall never cease to won- 
der. Peg enters into everything she undertakes with energy 
and enthusiasm, and loses no time in achieving results. The 
same holds true, it must be confessed, in her studies, where she 
has profited by Katink's example to dispense with these neces- 
sary evils with a phenomenal speed. 1920 can't express its 
appreciation of you, Peg, but we'll look back through the years 
and feel ourselves better for having known you.

Miss Sylvia Mishel was one of those frequently seen

— Society Notes, The Review. 
To one the least bit socialistically inclined, it would seem that 
Sylvia had secured more than a fair share in the "distribu- 
tion of wealth" — as viewed by a woman. We shudder to 
think what would be her fate under a Socialist Suffragette 
System. We're afraid a pretty heavy "excess profit" tax 
would be imposed on anyone whose list of assets contained such 
items as: 

Good looks — brown eyes, curly hair and a Vogue figure 
worthy of special mention; brains — an abundance; efficiency — 
maximum marks with limited (yea, very limited) labor; pro- 
ficiency — technical, the attainment of a sufficient degree of; 
clothes — which defy analysis. They are an indescribable com- 
bination of New York, Vanity Fair, and Sylvia. And that's not 
all! We didn't bother to classify such non-essentials as the 
ability to play the piano and the flute, and dance like Irene 
Castle.

some things we couldn't forget. Then, too, beneath this en- 
gaging exterior, there are hidden much independence of thought 
and a vast capability, particularly when it comes to tearing 
off page after page of the manuscripts of that widely read

Elizabeth Nott 



"The capacity of the human mind to resist the in- 
troduction of knowledge cannot be overestimated." 

Bunch might, then, not improperly be termed Simmons' great- 
est "La Resista." Her achievement in this line is second only 
to the signal success with which she has managed to resist 
the temptation to arrive on time at nine o'clock classes. Per- 
sistent good humor and an even temper are, however, just as 
truly a part of her nature. Bunch's service two years back 
as a farmerette evidently proved a deathblow to her in- 
clinations libraryward, for ever since she has been unable to 
stifle the desire to burst forth, as it were, into a first-class 
agriculturist. Just what she will concentrate her attention 
upon no one knows, though she herself admits it will be some- 
thing of an eatable nature. In the light of Bunch's appetite 
(which has even driven her to the in-between-meal habit of 
chewing a rubber band) we may be assured that her work will 
not suffer from lack of a personal interest.

"Lib" 

"In arguing, too, the parson owed his skill, 
For e'en though vanquished, he could argue still." 
That sudden sound, that voice from the uncharted depths, 
a human sound, when all humanity is sleeping — why — that's 
Lib elucidating. "No, it's only twenty-nine minutes past ten." 
And, apropos of nothing at all, it generally is. 

Lib's the greatest little "manager" Simmons ever produced 
— guaranteed to manage everything from the best hockey season 
we ever had to Rache Farwell with a "cold id her dose" and 
believe us, that last is a job worthy the master hand of G. 
W. or Napoleon. 

There's one thing we wouldn't be ashamed to know, how- 
ever, and that is how Lib so successfully manages Boston Uni- 
versity and the city of Worcester at one and the same time. 
Tricks in all trades, even to managerial ability, but we're "down 
for the count" on that proposition.

Helen Rebecca Oakes 

"Oakesie" 
"How she loves its gentle murmur, 
How she loves its constant flow, 
How she loves to wind her tongue up, 
How she loves to let it go!" 
It is a matter of debate, however, as to which Oakesie 
would choose — eating or talking — if one process hindered the 
other, which fortunately, in this case, it doesn't. Her repu- 
tation regarding the former accomplishment is constructive as 
well as destructive, and the astonishing way she can demolish 
ice cream and Maine cider and all good things is equaled by 
the way she creates — well, divinity fudge, for instance. From 
hoary antiquity, the wise and the facetious have discoursed 
upon man's terror of woman's tongue and on his edibilatory 
weakness, and it is woman's problem, Helen, to determine the 
relative strength of these antipodal forces. 

We think — Helen certainly thinks — that her life is an abused 
and henpecked one, with publishers and treasurers' books and 
friends over-solicitous for the preservation of her dignity. But 
what can one do when one was born with a giggle?

"Okie" 
"In ivit a man, in innocence a child." 
There was one person who knew just what was going to be 
in this writeup, or thought she did, long before one word had 
been put on paper, and that person was Okie. But, we wish 
to state that really she didn't know the half of it, for all she 
thought necessary was "M. O'Connor, Average Girl, Track, 
Dramatics." The other half is that Okie is so far beyond the 
average that she leaves it trailing in the dust, just as she 
leaves the ground when she does one of the famous O'Connor 
jumps every season at Track Day. Oh, yes, indeed, Marie 
hits the high spots, and when she goes in for anything there's 
nothing half-hearted in her method. This season it has been 
the social whirl of Harvard and Tech, with a bit of opera and 
theater thrown in. No wonder Okie captured the Most Ver- 
satile, for it is all of that to be able to turn from finding the 
life, habits and customs of some chemical unknown to starring 
in Dramatics. Some of Okie's rare remarks, the delight of 
her sister Bolsheviks, are the result of an astounding naivete 
a delicious frankness, and an unequaled faculty for making 
"breaks." And when it comes to seeing jokes, and incidentally 
analyzing them — but forgive us, Okie, we will say no more, for 
we realize that now we are encroaching upon the domain of 
Percy Flage.

Hath something more than pounds and pence;

A little use of common sense." 
Fred practiced economy with the English language long 
before Mr. Hoover's name ever appeared at the foot of a food 
bulletin. Not content with existing restrictive measures at 
Simmons, she is now enjoying a cut system all her own. No 
less precision does she exercise in the matter of choosing her 
friends, in regard to whom we know her taste to be essentially 
cosmopolitan. So much so that the habitues of First Floor 
North received a sudden shock last fall by the appearance in 
Fred's room of a small but convincing member of the reptile

plans to use him as the foundation for a museum which she will 
some day bequeath to her beloved Princeton!

"We girls have such spirits." 
If there had been a contest for the "Speediest Talker," 
Helen would have left the rest of us gasping for breath and 
actually walked away, or rather talked away with the laurels, 
for she has the reputation of being able to say more in one

hearts begin to flutter in a way that would make any per- 
fectly good matinee-idol fairly green with envy, and when she 
makes love, well — there is no doubt but that she has profited 
by splendid example. Some man is going to get a secretary 
with all the earmarks of efficiency, capability, etcetera, but, alas,

That Pete is above us all as far as height is concerned

a place among the Most Dignified are consoled by the thought 
that that is why she captured one of the crowns. Pete has 
a conscience that would make the proverbial New England 
conscience look to its laurels, and the wonder of her life is 
how she ever passed a course at Simmons. Biennially, she 
receives the shock of her existence when she discovers to her 
utter amazement that she hasn't flunked every subject, not to 
say anything of a few A's and B's, whose origin, though they 
are down in black and white, she is unable to figure out. At 
Glee Club concerts this season, Miss Peterson has lent an un- 
mistakably ultra air and a most effete tone, partly due to her 
absolutely oceanic wave and a pair of siren-like earrings that 
smack of the alluring.

Someone with a passion for categorical discrimination sug- 
gested a Gigglers' Club with Peg as the Prima Donna Giggler. 
Everyone has heard Peg's laugh; it's just as apt to bubble up 
in the middle of a Congressional Record and leave our work-

June as it is to mingle with our multifariously pitched giggles

an obvious fact when one has heard the surpassing vehemence 
and vigor with which she expresses her opinions. She has 
well-defined ones on the joys of home life for one thing!

Helen Monica Ripley 

"Rip" 
"Out, damned spot — out, I say!" 

You've heard of the famous Robin Hood's barn, of course, 
but it took Rip to discover it in real life, and to be sure she'd 
made no mistake she made three trips around said building. 
When not riding around barns she's acting as common carrier for 
two valises, five or six books, a Boston bag, a scarf, a muff, 
a variegated collection of Army pins and a bottle of ink be- 
tween North "Chumsford" and Simmons. Rip is a member 
of the progressive party once known as the Junior Bolshe- 
viks, but now become the Senior Soviet, which makes merry 
in the lunchroom every day. As chief contributor of tact to 
that heterogeneous assemblage she bids fair for a niche in the 
Hall of Fame. Around these hallowed halls Rip's chief asset 
is ink on hand, but if you've never see her in full war paint, 
armed for the battle of the ballroom, you don't know Rip. 

Her flow of English in our Freshman classes frightened us 
so we came near never knowing her. But having penetrated 
the barrage of polysyllables with which she wards off the un- 
suspecting, we found one of those rare gifts, a mind. Yearn- 
ings toward Oxford don't exactly coincide with the "sterkly" 
business ideas thrust upon us at Simmons, but then we've long 
since given up accounting for the vagaries of mind of anyone 
who has weathered four years with Rip's gang.

Every class has its "woman of mystery" and 1920 has Sophie. 
Since Freshman days we have endeavored to penetrate beyond 
mere external appearances to know more about how her time 
was spent when she was not reasoning with a racy Remington, 
or overcoming an unruly Underwood, but 'twas of no avail. 
Sophie remained a mystery, but all the while we were fos- 
tering a suspicion that Sophie was possessed of powers that 
would make Theda Bara put away' her earrings in despair and 
cause Valeska Surratt to exit from the stage sighing "What's 
the use!" At length, some incriminating evidence, based upon 
some of her own testimony, was brought to light and it 
proved beyond a shadow of doubt that we were right. No 
longer did we only suspect that the activity of Sophie's tele- 
phone wire is such that answers the question, "Why Tele- 
phone Girls Strike" — we knew it. And when confronted with 
the facts, she would neither affirm nor deny.

"She hath the power to loose the fetters of harmony,

If only it could be arranged to have a victrola playing some 
of the latest records attached to Frances' Underwood, we feel 
that her speed in typewriting would exceed all limits and she 
would be veritably swamped with cardcases and covered with 
medals — all due to her responsiveness to "jazz." There would 
be another advantage in this too, for she could shut off the 
record whenever she so desired, something she cannot always 
do when some catchy refrain is running through her mind 
during a deep and lengthy lecture. In Mic Show, however, 
the ban is off and with the aid of her banjo she can give vent 
to her feeling. The result is music which is guaranteed to give 
even the absolutely "jazz-proof" a severe attack of syncopation. 
And while the weary Secretariate complain of overwork, Fran 
wonders why, for she has solved the problem of how to reduce 
study to the minimum and get away with it.

It is fortunate that this habit hasn't become too strong, for 
she might have decided to refrain from attending classes or 
going to chapel. Yet, if she did go so far as this, it probably 
would not be disastrous, for her resolutions are not always of 
long standing. For example, rumor has it that her latest was 
a firm resolve not to get mad during Lent, but said resolu- 
tion was shattered the first day. No, she doesn't look like a 
person who is capable of getting "mad," but appearances are

Mabel Smith Stimpson 

"A manner so plain, grave, unaffected and sincere." 

Mabel has a head start on the rest of us, and she got it by 
just two steps. The first step gives her the privilege of sign- 
ing her name with the prefix "Mrs." attached to it, while 
some of us are in despair because we cannot even make a move 
when the signal is given at Senior Luncheon for the envied 
engaged to do the traditional marathon around the table. 
The second step, that of being Dr. Eldridge's secretary during 
the past summer, gives her the distinction of taking letters 
from that gentleman in a way that calls forth words of praise 
from him while the "lesser lights" gaze upon their efforts

"Deeds remain luhen mere words have disappeared in air." 

Helen belongs to the class of people who say nothing and

and making mistakes, sowing our wild oats as 'twere, Helen 
is reaping A's and B's and laying a perfectly good foundation 
for a perfectly good job. But the best part of it is that you 
like her while she's doing it. Perhaps it is because she always 
has a smile for the poorest of us.

Justine Tandy 

"Jus" 

"Tell me a thing she cannot dress, 
Soups, hashes, pickles, puddings, pies, 
Naught comes amiss, she is so ivise." 

Justine joined our valiant ranks in our Sophomore year, and 
since then we have been trying to make her out. There are 
times when she makes a nice old lady for our entertainment, 
hut give her a marcel wave and a hair comb a la Elsie Fer- 
guson, and who says a blonde can't be a "vamp"? Justine has 
two specialties, Southern Club Dances and Harvard Law 
School men, and the two are synonymous, for Justine has at- 
tended every one of the former this season accompanied by 
one of the latter. Really, a S. C. D. without Jus would be 
like a dance in the Town Hall without the village belle.

Susan Mossman Templeton 

"Sue" 

"Give me a look, give me a face 
That makes simplicity a grace." 

The first glance at Sue gives one the impression that she is 
nothing if not sweet, simple and girlish. With her hair parted 
in the middle, her eyes cast down, and her hands folded we 
pictured Sue as a quiet little person knitting by the fire. 
But, alas, we had made a fatal error, and we were not long 
in finding out that she was not the clinging vine, as one might 
expect, but was possessed of a mind all her own. As house 
chairman she petrifies us, and when it comes to keeping track 
of her dates — that is beyond the power of mere mortal.

"Mart" "Tom" 

"For nothing lovlier can be found- 
In woman than to study household good." 

Martha's favorite indoor sport this year is taking care of 
numerous families and seeing that they get porterhouse steak 
and cream on fifteen dollars a week. It's quite a job, but 
she's equal to it. We are depending on Mart to make a name 
for herself when she leaves Simmons.

Dorothy Lowe Thornton 

"Dot" 
"On the rampage, off the rampage — such is life." 

Hoist the red flag! We now have with us Miss Thornton, 
S. B. (Senior Bolshevik), relentless slave-driver of the toil- 
worn Mic Board. A most unusual combination, indeed, but 
nevertheless true, too true. In years past, Dot had a collection 
of the best little arguments against overwork warranted to 
shatter to shreds the slightest word in favor of drudgery, but 
evidently she conveniently lost them when she began to edit 
Mic. As she went on she lost about everything else, in- 
cluding her disposition and her heart, but one thing she held 
on to was her sense of humor — and praise to Allah, it still 
remains to put joy into life even in its darkest moments. When 
it comes to efficiency, capability, speed — commercially speaking, 
of course — and all those virtues, Dot is there absolutely. Just 
watch her typewrite, and you'll see her "jam it into first" and 
go on, utterly oblivious to all traffic rules, while perhaps you 
are having trouble with your self-starter, and if you are still 
not convinced ask her to show you Exhibit A, a most rococo 
vanity case. 

N. B. To those who are ignorant of Miss Thornton's 
nationality, we would suggest that she is neither of Russian 
nobility nor Indian aristocracy, and has been in this country 
for some twenty years.

Gladys Emily Townsend 

"Glad" 
"/ never dare to write as funny as I can — " 

Gladys started out as a librarian, but decided that the Library 
School expected entirely too much so she changed to a snap 
course — Secretarial (?). In the course of four years she has 
come across two questions which she has never been able to find 
answers for: (1) Does a steam engine have to be steered? 
(2) Can one reach the library by climbing the ladder in the 
annex of the college building? 

P.S. — Glady's favorite dance record is "Kicking the Drum."

Katie is qualified to debate this subject, for few of us have 
attained the proficiency in it which she can claim. She would 
have us think it's the exertion which "mantles her cheek with 
crimson" after one of those elegantly careless drops into the 
basket for which she is famous, but she can't help knowing 
that we are all eyes for her every act on those occasions. 
Katie is also famous as sugar provider for all teas and for 
her ardent love for Pete House — some days you just can't 
make her leave it for College.

Edwina Davis Vories 

"Ed" 
"You have such a cheerful spirit. You are like a 
bright light in the house," 
And like the much-talked-of Lochinvar, there came out of 
the West to Simmons a maiden possessed of a manner warranted 
to thaw the iciest of hearts and reduce those of a warmer 
variety to the melting point. Edwina fairly radiates cheer, 
and her presence is useful as well as ornamental, for when 
there is work to be done Ed does it, although she camouflages 
it so beautifully that it loses all appearance of work and 
takes on the earmarks of pleasure. Such is the power of 
capability! To tell of Edwina's many talents would require 
a volume, but two cannot be left unmentioned, the musical art 
of rendering verse after verse to the accompaniment of her 
banjo or "uke" and the culinary art of evolving what she 
calls fudge, but what might rightly be termed "food for the 
gods."

Mary Evelyn Webber 

"Chels" 
"True as the dial to the sun 
Although it be not shined upon." 
What? You want to know the meaning of the studious 
figure bent over that little brown book in such concentrated 
manner? No, it isn't a "Soc" book, neither is it the most 
recent number of "Snappy Stories," either one of which might 
cause that air of profound absorption. It's a deep and dark 
secret, known only to her dearest friends, but, that's Mary, 
doing her "personal account." And, "get this carefully, please, 
ladies," the items of "postage" and "church collections" are not 
the largest ones there, from which you may correctly deduce 
that said accounts very often "come out right." 

Mary is the best little globe-trotter in Simmons. Whatsa 
coupla trips to Florida in her young life? Mere "infant's 
diversion" as we've heard someone say. And the tales of 
those Southern moons! Well — when we stand at our window 
at midnight, and see the New England night-light casting 
its broad gleaming path across — the Dump — they give us 
courage to sit wearily down at our desk, grasp blindly for pen- 
cil and paper, and — wax eloquent on the utter futility of this 
life. Oh, Mary, be careful. 

It is so seldom that we can record great deeds actually ac- 
complished by girls of such young and tender age. And yet, 
Mary, alone and unaided, has performed a feat worthy the 
utmost consideration and admiration. In fact, she can rest on 
her laurels (it certainly won't be a bed) on a $15 a week job 
now, knowing full well that her name will be handed down to 
posterity as one who, for a whole week, got Regine Joseph to 
class on time. Verily, she shall have her reward.

Barbara Widger 

"Barb" 

"She's bonnie, blooming, straiglit, and tall." 
A casual observer would say Barb led a strenuous life. One 
might naturally expect harassed haggardness as a result of 
swinging a job with a real doctor, pursuing a degree via the 
Medical Secretarial course, and occupying a most convenient 
and popular room in South. And occasionally a very live, rosy- 
cheeked Barb does exclaim vigorously, "I'm a wreck!" 

Whether she steams clams over a fire with a funereal effect 
on the eyes — not the spirits — of all else, or snowshoes in that 
magazine-cover-girl costume of hers, Barbara is a charming 
addition to any landscape.

Katharine Louise Willard 

"Kay" 
"Independence now, and independence forever." 
Little did we think, when we first saw "our little brown 
eyes" Freshman year, demure and given to the perusal of poetry 
received in "communications through the post" — more especially 
such sweetly sentimental fragments as "In the Spring a young 
man's fancy" — little did we think, as we started to say, that Kay 
would develop into the highly estimable and efficient young 
lady whom all the Secretarial Department recognize as 
"Coonie Willard, Champion Ringside Typist." 

Coonie is without doubt one of the neatest souls it has ever 
been our privilege to endeavor to imitate. And, speaking of 
clothes, of course you have noticed the dull blue scarf that is 
flung carelessly across her immaculate shoulders — how beauti- 
fully it brings out the subtle shades in her eyes! Well, no 
wonder, when you consider that it was selected with much care 
and forethought by an abbreviated portion of the Royal Navy 
of England. 

If you want a living example of the poet's exhortation 
"Push on — keep moving," take a look at Coon. She has the 
happiest faculty of putting over what she has to do with the 
minimum fuss and the least noise. And, best of all, "her 
modesty's a candle to her merit."

Margaret Withington 

"Mother" 

"It's good to be merry and wise." 

That's what the head of the Bradbury-Rust-Withington 
triumvirate surely is, both merry and wise. To sit next her 
in class is a sure cure against any possible boredom, and while 
entertaining her neighbors (only occasionally) with distract- 
ing pen-sketches, she can also answer or ask questions wisely 
— a combination which is the despair of duller mortals. We 
admire her efficiency, appreciate her ever-present sense of 
humor and love her laugh — to say nothing of her.

Harriet Asenath Wood 

"Harry" 

"She won't be happy till she gets it." 

Gets what? Why, her degree, of course. Even four event- 
ful years at Simmons have failed to break the spell of home- 
sickness which broods over her. She doesn't have it in fits, like 
most of us; it attached itself to her the first day she landed 
in Boston four years ago; she couldn't part with it, and so it 
has become a second part of her nature. Though a con- 
scientious student, it is said that Harriet even neglects her 
shorthand when her home town paper arrives at South Hall. 
One other subject, however, engrosses her attention, and upon 
this she will base the thesis of her Master's degree, "The 
Safety Pin: an Indispensable Factor in Life."

Dorothy Bell Woodward 

"/ dt'mand the right to know the whys and wherefores." 

Here is another question mark — and that applies to Dot in 
two ways. First, because of our inability to find out the 
secrets of her soul or her life, habits and customs beyond the 
walls of Simmons. Therefore she has a place among the enig- 
matic class who say little but appear at some festive function 
now and then with a perfectly good man in tow. Second, be- 
cause of the attraction that this mark of punctuation has for her 
as shown by the frequency with which she uses it as a suffix 
to her remarks, especially in classes — we should say after 
classes — when she plies the weary "prof" with interrogation 
after interrogation.

"Phosie" 

"The most manifest sign of wisdom is continued

"Howdy! Fine, thanks!" No matter when the occasion or 
who the person, Phosie gives the same greeting, and gives 
it in such a way that you begin to wonder if you weren't 
sadly mistaken in thinking that all the cheerful people in the 
world had passed on to parts unknown. When you ask her 
to do something, she is usually most modest about it, but that 
doesn't feaze you nor make you fear as to how it will be done. 
You know her better than to have any doubts as to her 
slipping up from her usual strict adherence to that time- 
worn maxim, "What is worth doing is worth doing well."

Helen Marie Wurtzbach 

"Wurtzy" 

"On bokes for to rede I me delyte." 

So Wurtzy thought, until the combined reading lists of 
the Senior Library course struck home with a shock which 
quite overcame her, and, we regret to say, left its per- 
manent mark on her disposition. Though a creature of moods, 
she has at least one prevailing sentiment; a cold and kill- 
ing aversion to everything that suggests the commonplace and 
routine in life. She has an undeniable way with her; hence 
we dare to predict that if her public fails to toe the expected 
mark, it will get terribly sat on. When her literary longings 
take shape, we shan't be surprised to find her indulging her 
skill on a subject something like this: "Sodden Routine: The 
Librarians' Curse." Wurtzy has one quality, however, which 
has survived the storm and stress period of Simmons Seniority. 
This is her rare sense of humor, benefit of which we have all 
felt, and may it bear her in as good stead in the years to come 
as in those past.

THE publication of the 1920 issue marks the Microcosm's tenth anniversary. 
Since it was founded in 1910 the policy of the Microcosm has passed through 
various changes in an effort to find how it might best fill those needs which other 
publications failed to meet, and especially to establish a permanent and worth while 
record of the organized activities of the student body, and of the students themselves. 

The Microcosm has proved to be all and more than the class who founded it ten 
years ago had hoped. Today it is a component part of Student Government, and this 
year, for the first time, has its own representative on Council. 

The Editors have changed the name of the "Just Good Times" section to the 
"Sun Dial," feeling that the new title is more individual. In this section the policy 
established last year of recording only the activities of the graduating class has been 
followed, as this seems the more logical way of making the Microcosm valuable as 
a record. 

A new section this year is devoted to the delegations, which have been omitted 
in the past. 

The Microcosm has, with everything else, felt the effects of increased costs, and 
though the price of the book was raised again, the expenses of this edition would not 
have been met except for the very efficient work of the Advertising Manager. The 
Editor wishes also to acknowledge with gratitude the work done by Miss Rachel 
Farwell in securing all the snapshots used. 

To the Microcosm Board, for their spirit of loyalty and cooperation throughout 
the year, the Editor expresses her keen appreciation.

TO THE Innocent Bystander, who, it is barely possible, may not know, it must be 
explained that this year there were two reasons for having a "Mic Show" — 
there was Mic itself — and there was last year's show. Fancy, ye gentle (or 
rough) readers, if you can, an attempt to write up the Odyssey in opera bouffe style, 
with book and lyrics dashed off with the chatty persiflage of a John Milton and the 
conconservative artistry of an Irving Berlin. Fancy it. Ah, you cannot. But that is 
exactly the problem which faced the management of Mic last fall — namely, to wit, i.e., 
the revival and propagation of a classic. But the management had the talent and did 
not weaken and a brand new, steel-spring Mic Show — 1920 model — 100 proof — was 
the result. 

The Mic Show is primarily a musical show, but unlike most musical comedies 
this show contained a plot which unfolded without a rip, seam or snap. The scene was 
laid in the office of a harassed stage manager, and the first touch marking it out from 
the ordinary was the appearance of a scrub-lady actually scrubbing the floor, a rarely 
beautiful creature — very rare — one of those haunting Mack Sennett types. At once a 
shout arose from the audience, for this was none other than Lilli Putian of post season 
fame. But this Lilli had blossomed out into a chatty and ambitious young artist with 
stage aspirations and an ambition toward becoming the manager's leading lady. At 
present, however, "having been stricken in the actors' strike," she was studying the 
lower strata and the underworld as a menial. 

Just as Lilli was perpetrating an atrocity with her voice, there entered Typing 
Tilli — a lady whose unquiet jaws moved rhythmically as in some secret and mystic 
incantation. No, my friends, she was not communing with her stainless inner self. 
Close on her heels followed the stage manager, Ovid Burlesco, a nervous wreck of a 
little man rattling with irritation and fatigue, but efficient, you know, with that 
strictly business air. Upon his arrival he called a rehearsal and immediately the 
chorus of his new musical comedy began to rehearse. 

First came Mile. Galle Screechi and her chorus of songbirds, who gave a delightful 
rendition of "Burmah Moon." Then Mile. Screechi rehearsed two song features. The 
rehearsal went on while the irate Mr. Burlesco waited in vain for his leading lady to 
appear. It was not long before the leading man, L. Tell Agen, put in his appearance, 
dark and fascinating, dressed as a leading man should be. He apologized for being 
late and then bursting into song explained his reasons for the delay. There were four 
of them, and they represented four different schools from Secretarial to Science, but he 
assured us through his mustache, in a soaring tenor, — "that any Simmons girl 
would do." 

Scarcely had he finished when strains of martial music were heard and in marched 
the debonair and dashing General Joy with his orderly and his lost battalion, who 
went through a series of maneuvers which warmed the manager's heart. You hear a 
lot of complaints about "The Service," but after seeing those eight fluffy warriors, in 
threatening colored organdies, we decided that the army could be a lot worse. Military, 
my dear — you could fairly smell the powder from the moment they came in. When 
they had completed their Battle Hymn, "The Lost Battalion of Joy," Mr. Burlesco 
was discovered to have fallen asleep from sheer fatigue and in this unconscious state 
his tormented mind evolved the nightmare which followed. 

145 



mm rum mde^oeq^m m 



The lights went out for a second, and when they flashed on again the manager's 
dream was enacted in the form of a melodrama called "Marriage or Mortgage," which 
would have done credit to any eleven-cent (they've gone up, you know) novel. The 
characters were Mrs. Giggoby and her lovely daughter, Girlie, acted by none other 
than the manager's scrub-lady. Then there was Ruthless Rudolph Remington, deep 
dyed and villainous. Also Girlie's lover, Oswald Jinks, and, to break up their love, 
came Consomme Casserole, the acute angle in this melodramatic triangle. 

The scene changed from the farm to the cold city, where the lovely Girlie is work- 
ing in Rudolph's skirt factory to save her old home. From this point on, the plot 
moved with such rapidity that Girlie, in a thoughtless moment, severed Rudolph's 
jugular vein and incidentally bumped into the fast moving plot, spilling it and waking 
up the manager. Relieved to find his nightmare only a dream, he went on with the 
rehearsal. Miss Valeska Valance now entered and sang and then the manager 
himself was moved to song, surprising his cast with an unguessed vocal ability and 
literally bringing tears to the eyes of the sympathetic audience by a ballad with that 
touching, soul-stirring theme — the High Cost of Living. 

Commotion presently announced the belated arrival of the real leading lady — a 
languorous person with a Twin Six make-up and a one-cylinder artistic "temperature." 
She assured the manager that as a bomb-shell of joy she was simply TNT and could 
make "Bubbles of all his Troubles." Following her arrival came a delightful dance 
number in period costume by Jane Solov and after a grand final war cry, Mr. Burlesco 
called it a day and dismissed his players. 

When Greek meets Greek, they usually open a restaurant but when Mic Boards 
meet— well, WHAT NEXT ?

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 



WHAT is Student Government? It is the government of the stu- 
dents, by the students, and for the students. Every student in 
Simmons is a member of Student Government. Every student 
who has ever been in Simmons has been a member. The organization which 
we have today has been handed down for seventeen years. Each year the 
Council has tried to perfect it, and we are proud of what they have accom- 
plished. Let us band together and try to raise it one step higher toward 
perfection.

A NOTED preacher once said to a group of business men : "There 
are many ways of being busy in this world, but there is only one 
business here. The great affair of man is living. It is not merely 
the earning of a wage, nor the making of money, nor beating one's rivals, 
nor electing one's candidate. It is the process of turning environment and 
endowment into character." 

And that is what the Academy aims to do for the girls of Simmons 
College, to set before them an ideal, that their present work and glory may 
not obscure the deeper, richer, and finer conceptions of life, and that they 
may not forget that the really worth-while and lasting things arise from a 
development of the inner life. It aims to teach them to rise above the 
purely scientific, the purely technical, important though these may be, and 
to cultivate a real love for the best in art, literature, music, and government. 

May the ideal of the Academy be representative of every true and loyal 
Simmons girl; let it mean an appreciation of the best, that shall begin during 
her four years in college and continue during the long, full years of her life! 

Membership in the Academy is open both to graduates and under- 
graduates whose grades have reached the standard established by the society. 
The standard is the attainment of fifty per cent A points, or of twenty-five 
per cent A points and ninety per cent A and B points, in all courses taken in 
academic subjects. Under the old system of marks, graduates must have 
acquired thirty per cent H's, or ninety-five per cent H's and P's.

WITH the addition of several new Freshman houses, Dormitory 
Government has had added responsibility, for, after all, it is the 
Freshmen who must be started in the right way to carry things 
as they should be later. We little realize our first year how very important 
it is to begin in the way which will give the most to our college and to our- 
selves. Not only that we shall begin our college life right, but that we shall 
leave, feeling we have done all we can. We do not realize what college has 
done for us until later years, when, as Seniors, we share the responsibility 
with the Faculty of trying to set the example and help others to appreciate 
its benefits. 

The cooperation of the new students has been good, as it has been 
with the older students; but when we realize the individual thoughtfulness 
of community life, then our government will be more ideal. However, 
when this ideal is reached, we will find something higher to work for, as 
our Dormitory Government standard is always being raised. The success 
of the year has been due largely to the spirit of the Freshmen and the 
cooperation of Dormitory girls. May the coming year bring forth a more 
ideal government with sincere cooperation and effort.

THE Civic League has continued the work which was started under 
the new organization of last year. We have tried to bring before 
the students speakers who can tell them of the economic and political 
questions prominent today. Interesting subjects on art have been taken 
up also. 

We have been very fortunate in obtaining some prominent speakers. 
Mr. Charles Zueblin, Mr. Wilfred Humphries, who told us of his experi- 
ences in Russia, Mrs. Monica Ewer of the London Daily Times, Dr. James 
J. Walsh of New York City, Mr. Weiss of the U. S. Secret Service, have 
been able to come to us. 

The Consumers' League and the Socialism Group are combined with 
the Civics League and have worked under it. 

It is hoped that the work will be continued next year, for it is of vital 
importance for college students to become acquainted with outside interests.

THE SIMMONS COLLEGE REVIEW is issued monthly from No- 
vember to July inclusive. It has a rather peculiar problem in that it 
endeavors to serve the interest of three groups of people: the under- 
graduates, the alumnae, and the faculty and administration. It tries to en- 
courage literary expression among the student body by printing such under- 
graduate contributions as are of sufficient merit. It is planned to include in 
each number one article by some person other than an undergraduate which 
will be of general interest to the whole group of readers. Sections of the 
magazine are devoted to faculty notes, items concerning the alumnae, and 
undergraduate activities. By these means, the Review endeavors to con- 
solidate the interests of all those connected with the college and to serve as 
a connecting link between groups which have a tendency to grow apart 
rather than together. 

The aim of the Review is to be true to the best that is in Simmons 
and to be a means of fostering and strengthening the "Simmons spirit."

FOR the first year in its history, as a result of the work of the committee 
of last year, the Honor Board has a constitution giving to the Board 
a permanent and stable foundation. This, of course, has largely 
decreased the difficulties arising for the Board and its actual duties. 

Moreover, there has been this year a very marked decrease in the 
number of cases of dishonor to be dealt with by the Board. This fact seems 
most encouraging, for it shows, we believe, a growth of the system in that 
it is being more universally upheld. 

The work of the Board, then, has been mainly an endeavor to formu- 
late a plan by which the work of the Honor Board, its ideals, and stand- 
ards of honor for Simmons shall be brought directly to the attention of the 
individual student. To accomplish this end there is to be given to each 
entering student in the fall a statement of the principles and standards of 
the Board, for the maintenance and furtherance of which the cooperation 
of the student is requested. By such means it is hoped that interest and 
public opinion will so strongly back the Honor System that it will be able 
to expand in importance and influence until the time will come — and not 
too far distant — when the name of Simmons will be synonymous with 
honor.

ABOUT seven years ago an Endowment Fund Committee, consisting 
of three members from each class, was organized for the purpose 
of interesting the student body in a Student Building Fund. This 
year the alumnae and the faculty and undergraduates are working together 
and the work of the undergraduates is carried on under the name of the 
Student Alumnae Building Committee. 

Members of the committee started their work early in the fall, gather- 
ing and selling the mushrooms which grew in the hockey field. The com- 
mittee next turned its time and attention to selling the little blue and gold 
brick banks which the Illinois Simmons Club was making to raise its quota. 

At Christmas time the sale of cards and calendars added to the amount 
already attained and the New Year came with a Student Government dance 
for the benefit of the fund. The faculty-student teas were given bi-monthly 
to bring the students and faculty closer together and incidentally to add 
small sums to the fund. We are looking forward to the students' drive, 
which will come as a part of the big campaign for a Simmons endowment.

THE great Student Volunteer Convention was held in Des Moines 
from December 31 to January 6. This movement was backed by 
the Y.M.C.A.'s and Y.W.C.A.'s in all the colleges throughout the 
United States and Canada, with the result that over 7000 delegates assem- 
bled to receive inspiration for Christian living that will last all their lives. 

Another nation-wide movement is that of the Interchurch World 
Movement of North America. A series of meetings were held during the 
week-end of March 6 for all students of Boston and vicinity, to encourage 
them to enter upon any work they may be called on to do with the determina- 
tion to make it an expression of Christian service. 

Still another matter of universal interest is the National Y.W.C.A. 
Convention, held April 13 to 19, in Cleveland. The question of member- 
ship basis will come up to be voted on for the second time, and if it is 
passed at this convention, the membership basis of the Simmons Association 
will probably be changed from the church membership to the personal. 
It will be a fairer, broader, and at the same time, a more definitely Christian 
basis for membership than the present one, and we hope it will be effective 
in making Y.W. a still more vital part of the life of the students of Simmons 
than it has been before.

THE world is watching with keen interest the reestablishing of the 
Jewish nation, and it behooves us to know something of a people 
who, throughout the ages, have clung tenaciously to their ideal of 
nationality. 

The Menorah Society, through its activities, affords opportunities for 
studying the history, literature, and ideals of these people. Its library sup- 
plies the working material in the form of books. Its study circle takes up 
current topics of Jewish interest, giving opportunity for study and dis-

the organization on interesting phases of Jewish life. 

This is its fourth successful year of activity and the Menorah, with 
its symbol, the seven-branched candelabrum, continues to "shed light."

THE Christian Science Society of Simmons College has continued to 
progress during 1919-1920, and much benefit and inspiration have 
been gained by those in attendance at its weekly Friday meetings in 
the Students' Room. Early in the year a reception was held, to which all 
those interested in Christian Science were invited and new members wel- 
comed into the society. In October, a lecture on Christian Science was 
delivered at the college by Mr. George Shaw Cook, C.S.B., of Chicago, 
111., a member of the Board of Lectureship of the Mother Church, the 
First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. The Literature Distribution 
Committee has placed subscriptions to Christian Science periodicals in the 
Library and Students' Room and in North and South Halls, and the other 
houses on campus.

AS CARDINAL NEWMAN stands out as a strong influence for good 
in the nineteenth century, so we want our club, his namesake, to stand 
out in our college activities. The main purpose of the Newman Club 
is to create a bond of union among the Catholic students of Simmons and 
to strengthen their knowledge of their religion. 

Although the club is still in its infancy its influence has already been 
keenly felt. This success has been largely due to the interest and encourage- 
ment of Miss Barbarrosa and the hospitality of the Religious of the Cenacle. 
Two meetings are held each month: a formal meeting in the college 
building and a rather informal meeting at the Convent of the Cenacle, in 
Brighton. At these bi-monthly meetings lectures upon appropriate subjects 
of interest are delivered by eminent Catholic authorities. 

The scope of the club has been broadened by its admission to the 
Federation of College Catholic Clubs. 

We hope that the Catholic spirit of the Newman Club will be felt 
throughout the college.

"THE QUEEN'S MESSENGER" 
By J. Hartley Manners 
At the Refectory, December 12 and 13, 1919 

IN THE production of "Suppressed Desires," the much-discussed psycho- 
analysis play of the season, the Dramatic Club achieved a considerable 
triumph. The performance savored decidedly of the professional in 
the well-rounded, convincing characterization and light comedy spirit with 
which it was played. Helen Lynch portrayed the dream-solving Henrietta, 
a most superior type of New Woman and an ardent disciple of psycho-analy- 
sis, while Louise Gillis as Mabel was charmingly feminine in graceful 
negligees and a manner of helpless naivete. Ruth Franc, as Stephen — 
husband of Henrietta — was a huge success and her portrayal of a mild 
little man goaded beyond endurance by a super-wife, showed a delighted 
audience how dreams may be turned into nightmares. 

The "Queen's Messenger," which was given the same evening, was a 
more serious piece, centering around a slender and alluring Russian spy 
who inveigled an honest Englishman into losing a certain state paper. We 
were all eyes as to the beautiful Russian lady, and impressed beyond words 
with Captain Standish's moustache. It was a difficult scene to depict, bor- 
dering on the melodramatic, but successfully managed by Dorothy Drew 
and Mary Frances Hartley.

Scene — Breakfast-room in the Hon. Sandy Verrall's flat, London. 

AFTER two weeks' intensive rehearsal, "Eliza Comes to Stay" was 
presented at the Refectory on the evenings of March 19 and 20 
■ for the benefit of the Endowment Fund. An audience which has 
learned to expect much of the Dramatic Association pronounced the per- 
formance one of the most finished ever given in Simmons halls. 

Eliza was played with sympathetic understanding by Marie O'Connor. 
The transition from the awkward, repelling workhouse girl with her 
Cockney accent and exaggerated plainness of person, to the exquisite young 
woman of charming personality and correct speech, showed remarkable 
versatility and demonstrated anew Miss O'Connor's skill. 

Helen O'Neil's "Uncle Sandy" was a lovable young Englishman alter- 
nately rising to heights of delight at the prospect of welcoming his golden- 
haired, blue-eyed legacy, and sinking to depths of despair when he beheld 
the impossible young person whom he had promised to "cherish." 

166 




The central figures were surrounded by a strong supporting cast. That 
choleric old Englishman, Alexander Stoop Verrall, was played by Margaret 
Durand with a keen appreciation of the possibilities in the part. Miss 
Durand's make-up was particularly effective. Helen Lynch is an easy and 
finished actress and as Lady Pennybroke she duplicated her former suc- 
cesses. One bit of acting between Miss Lynch and Miss O'Connor was 
notable. In it the cold, selfish Lady Pennybroke, deliberately sacrificing 
Eliza (now Dorothy) to family pride, reveals for a moment a very human 
side when she tells Dorothy that she loves her. Here Miss Lynch struck 
a very sincere note which was perfectly upheld by Miss O'Connor. Louise 
Gillis surprised her friends and admirers by fitting perfectly into a mascu- 
line role when they had been taught to look upon her as entirely at home in 
the dainty feminine. As Montague Jordan she gave an amusing portrayal 
of a very dull, entirely complacent, self-centered Englishman, whose great- 
est interest in life had centered about his collection of birds' eggs until he 
condescended to bestow his rather blase affections upon Dorothy. Beatrice 
Gilman made a fascinating Vera Laurence, a dilettante actress yearning for 
a proper vehicle through which to express herself, but ending by marrying 
Uncle Alexander for his money. Ella Matthews as the ubiquitous valet, and 
Margaret Randall as the motherly nurse, played their parts capably. 

The stage settings, constructed entirely from dormitory furnishings, 
deserve mention.

HOCKEY was more than ever the main interest this fall. The success of the 
season was in a great measure due to the coaching of Miss Diall and Miss 
Collett, and to the efficient managing of the sport by Elizabeth Nowers. Fifty 
girls, composing the four teams, gathered at the Refectory for the first hockey dinner, 
which was a decided success. 

Tennis singles brought out an unusual number of people this fall. Tennis 
doubles will be played in the spring as usual. Hockey will also be continued in the 
spring. 

Basketball has been splendidly supported this year. Several informal games have 
been played between class teams and dormitory teams which have afforded a great deal 
of fun to the girls.

THE Musical Association is composed of the Glee Club, Choir, Mando- 
Club, and Orchestra. 
The Glee Club has made marked progress under the guidance 
of its new and enthusiastic director, Mrs. Carlton Slack. In addition to 
the usual concert of February 27 and 28, and that for the Seniors in June, 
an extra concert was given in November for the benefit of the Musical 
Association, with commendable success. 

The Choir, with its ninety-five members, eighty-five of whom are Glee 
Club members, rehearses every Wednesday afternoon in Library B after 
Assembly. This year the Choir has aimed for a distinct improvement in 
the music for Chapel Exercises. 

The Mandolin Club and Orchestra have developed noticeable skill 
under the efficient and conscientious leadership of Margaret Milne and 
Mary Rafish. 

If every member of the association continues earnestly to support and 
cooperate with the efforts of Mrs. Slack, the future triumphs of the asso- 
ciation will far eclipse those of the past.

SILVER BAY 

ON THE shores of Lake George, in northern New York, there is held 
every year during the last ten days of June, under the auspices of 
Y.W.C.A., a conference of delegates from the leading women's colleges of 
northeastern United States. Here every morning during the conference 
are held classes and mass meetings for which the best speakers in the country 
are obtained. In the afternoon intercollegiate sports, both land and water, 
take place. Silver Bay, situated as it is in the heart of the mountains, offers 
an opportunity for ten profitable days of study and meditation after the 
final trying June days at college. 

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. 

The annual conference of the Intercollegiate Association for Student 
Government was held this year at Wilson College, Chambersburg, Pa., from 
November 20 to 22. Here delegates from forty women's colleges met for 
discussion. This year Simmons was represented by Mary Kimball, 1920, 
and Famie Johnson, 1921. 

A great honor was conferred on us at this conference by the election 
of a Simmons girl to act as secretary of the conference next year. This 
secretary will be elected with the other college officers in May, and will 
be a member of the Council. 

DES MOINES, IOWA 

During November and December we were busy raising money by 
minstrel shows, faculty baseball games, and even by shining shoes, in order 
that Simmons might send her quota to the Student Volunteer Conference at 
Des Moines, la. With the aid of the corporation, faculty, and the Boston 
Student Y.W.C.A. we were finally able to send ten girls to Des Moines on 
December 27. At the conference there were eight thousand students, repre- 
senting ninety per cent of the colleges of the United States and Canada. The 
enthusiasm and new "spirit" which the delegates brought back to the college 
amply repaid those of us who had worked so hard to send them..

FRESHMAN FROLIC, MAY 5, 19 17 

"London Bridge is falling down, 
My fair lady!" 

A^D on the bridge was all the Freshman Fearful Feeling, all the lost 
chord sensations that we may have had the first of the year when we 
just entered our chosen halls of learning — in" brief, we reverted 
to type. 

On the bridge, too, was the modish coiffure and in its place appeared 
pigtails of a tightness that would have turned Sis Hopkins a delicate green 
shade. Beguiling and innocent faces were framed in fat curls, tied with 
smashing big pink bows. Rompers and socks, smocks and overalls — nobody 
would have suspected that "we were not what we seemed." 

Then we played. Played? Of a truth we romped, we gamboled over 
the — no, we didn't either, because it rained, and we stayed in the Refectory.

again, so we dressed up the next day like this :

SOPHOMORE LUNCHEON, NOVEMBER 10, 1918 

OUR Sophomore Luncheon — the best day of the year." It was that 
surely, and not one 1920 girl will ever forget it. From the decora- 
tions, which turned our prosaic mess hall into a beribboned and be- 
flowered nest of yellow, to the presentation of "A Simmons Girl's Dream," 
accompanied by "soft music" and "original verse," it was just what you'd 
want a Sophomore Luncheon to be. 

But you want to know more about that dream, don't you ? — the dream 
with "Prince Rae" in his silk, hat and monocle, fur coat and swallow tail, 
flitting across the horizon followed by the slim, athletic, white-sweatered 
figure (note the slimness of C. Damon), and — oh! — do you remember 
Ed Hall's noisy, nay, even deafening, red necktie and black and white suit? 
"Them was the happy days." 

The serving of the "most delectable of viands" was interspersed with 
our luncheon songs and toasts given by representatives from each of the 
schools. Katink's speech as President is one of the things we remember still. 

Margaret Milne was general chairman of the luncheon, Edna Hall 
was toastmistress, and the representatives from the school were : 



Secretarial, Harriette Gordon 
Library, Margaret Nellis 



Household Economics, Ruth Gabler 
General Science, Marie O'Connor

SOPHOMORE GHOST WALK, OCTOBER 26, 1917 

LONG close-packed lines of 
Singing, swaying Sophomores, 
Carrying chains that clanked and clattered like 
Dead men's bones; 

Doleful, deathlike dirges that deranged 
South Hall; 
Coffee, 

A clear and concentrated concoction, 
And doughnuts — 
Dark brown and delicious — 
That was 
1920's Sophomore Ghost Walk. 

Viginti viginti, 

Nomen et gloria, 

Sempiterna erunt 

Viginti viginti. 



MAY DAY, 191 8 

"Birds and flowers, soft dew falling, 
Tell us this is May Day — " 

IF THERE'S any truth in that saying about the "early bird," etc., said 
little bird must have enjoyed quite a husky meal on May Day morning, 
for it couldn't have been more than half past four when he hopped upon 
all the repeats in every Big Ben in the Sophomore houses. In other words, 
we "arose betimes" and hied ourselves to the campus. 

It was a gorgeous morning, cool and sunshiny. The May Queen's 
throne was adorned with flowers and foliage gathered in the wilds of Natick 
in the wee sma' hours by one faithful henchman, Rachel Farwell by name. 
And the Queen — but just look at her for yourself. Do you wonder we were 
proud to crown her and sing her praises? 

Then appeared maidens attired in rainbow colors — incidentally cheese- 
cloth — and they entertained us with the dances of Ye Olden Dayes. 

And finally, after we had raised our voices in many a gay and happy 
song, the Queen deigned to favor her loving subjects with royal favor — a 
flower from her bouquet. 

But no, that wasn't quite all. The gentle zephyrs of the early New 
England morn had visited upon us a huge and voluminous appetite and we 
breakfasted in truly royal fashion on — Strawberry Shortcake!

JUNIOR-SENIOR PICNIC, MAY 31, 1919 

WE CAME, we saw, and Nantasket surrendered unconditionally to 
a mere hundred and fifty of us. The engagement took place on 
a gorgeous day in late spring — the battlefield lay calm and peace- 
ful before our advancing troops. Led by General Aff A. Bility, we came 
upon the foe, all unsuspecting, basking quietly in the sunlight. The first 
line trenches were merely a matter of minutes, due, doubtless to the spirit 
of comradeship and light-heartedness — yea, even levity — existing among 
our troops. Flushed with victory and ginger pop, we pressed on, until the 
last trench was cleared. Ah! Rest for the weary! 

Mess call sounded, and except for an occasional crack when the cork 
from a sarsaparilla bottle hit a helmet, the usual "canned willie" and "jahm 
an' tay" were attacked. 

In the meantime, the enemy had recouped their losses and entrenched 
themselves firmly in Paragon Park, where they put up a stubborn resistance. 
At 2.57, however, when our men and their money were well-nigh spent, the 
artillery arrived on roller coasters, surrounded the enemy via merry-go- 
rounds, and the day was won. 

Alas ! What a sight of carnage met our sunburned eyes as we retired 
— victors over the foe. The field, strewn with battered wrecks of pop- 
corn boxes, horrible with decapitated lollipops and little "dogs" mutilated 
beyond recognition, and beyond, the water, reddened with the dye from 
rented bathing suits.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT PARTY 
May 23, 1919 

ELECTION party! There's a thrill in the air! A thrill of spring, 
a thrill of suspense, of expectancy, a suggestion of something about 
to happen, of great surprises and enthusiasm to come — and, in the 
minds of the proletariat, at least, a dull foreboding, a vague fear that the 
lobster salad may, after all, be only tuna fish. 

The Student Government mass meeting in the spring is always the 
very nicest party of the year, and 19 19 was to us the very nicest year. We'll 
always remember flowers and songs and happiness, and, at the end, a choky 
feeling, as we realize that, somehow or other, between class elections at 
half past four and step singing at seven we had "grown up."

MOST POPULAR 

We really could have saved time, labor, and expense in 
this contest by declining to count the votes. Everybody 
knew "Peg" Milne was the most popular girl in the class. 
Why, didn't we have the perspicacity to pick her out for 
president Freshman year? And she's gone right on grow- 
ing more popular ever since, just simply because she's 
"Peg." Maybe We don't "love our president, children." 

Of course "Peg" couldn't vote for herself — so there 
was one vote, more or less, left over. Half of this went 
to Mary Kimball, and the other half to Ed Hall. 




BEST SPORT 

Of course Rache Farwell is the best sport we know. 
Who ever asked her to do anything yet that she wasn't 
game for? It's positively guaranteed to make no differ- 
ence what it is. She'll eat anything at any time anywhere, 
she'll trot down to Chelsea Court without a murmur and 
contribute to the upkeep of the city of Lynn by paying 
her speed fine, she'll get up from her "downy cot," go 
down to the Refectory and dance, she'll run off on the li'l 
ol' Remington songs and reports and "table lists" — well — 
just find something in the whole category that she won't 
do, and "you're a better man than I am." 

Ed Hall is the "second-best" sport. We're casting no 
aspersions now on quality — this is simply a "quantitative 
analysis," whatever that is. Nothing ever fazes her — she 
goes serenely on, just as good a loser as she is a winner. 

No collection of good sports would be complete, how- 
ever, without Izzy Jones. She's got a quality of sports- 
manship that's all her own — that needs no further words 
from a harrowed scribe.

BEST LOOKING 

Florenz Ziegfield hadn't met Katink Damond when he 
expounded his ideas on good-looking girls, otherwise he 
would simply have used the accompanying photograph and 
"called it a day's work." But Miss Damon would rather 
shine with the literary bright lights than with those his- 
trionic stars. "Beauty in a Library" can accomplish so 
much for the higher education of the race ! 

In direct contrast to the dusky loveliness of Miss Damon 
is the delightfully fair type represented — but, we're not 
writing a treatise on the "Death of the Natural Blondes" 
— we're merely trying to say that Fran Newhall got sec- 
ond place in this beauty contest, and Mary Fulton came 
in third. 




MOST PROMISING 

Ye Ed is, of a truth, promising. Her future looms 
large upon the horizon. See that billboard over there? 
"Positiv-ely the last appearance this season of Miss Thorn- 
ton, the brilliant young author of 'A Plea for the Bolshe- 
viks.' " Or perhaps we shall hang spellbound over the 
balcony rail as she declaims from the floor of the House, 
bringing tears to our eyes by her impassioned pleading for 
legislation to relieve the overworked secretaries of Sim- 
mons. Whichever it is, we predict that it will be big, and 
go over strong. 

Harriette Gordon, as manager of everything that needs 
managing, shows much promise. That girl do get ads as 
easily as taking candy away from a blind baby. And 
Vivian Harris has done such awfully good work along 
her special scientific line that we fully expect our young 
hopefuls will benefit by it. Oh, well, we are getting old, 
you know.

MOST RESPECTED 

"We thank whatever stars there be" for "Kimmie," the 
most respected girl in 1920. Why, we couldn't help but 
respect her, with her broadmindedness, her devotion to her 
"job" and her willingness to tackle any little stray 
"tawsks" like — oh — drying up a mud puddle by sitting in 
it, in a new coat, for example. "Equilibrium, thou art 
just as much of a jewel as consistency." 

Barbara Widger, in second place, is as worthy of respect 
as she is respected, and Ruth Giles — well — we haven't 
yet searched our inmost literary soul to ascertain whether 
the respect accorded her was called forth by acts of omis- 
sion or commission. But — on to the next spasm. 




MOST CAPABLE 

You'd have to do two things to realize that Harry 
Gordon is the most capable girl in the class — first look at 
her, and second — give her something to do. She diffuses 
an atmosphere of capability somehow or other, whether 
she's rendering "Dardanella," with variations, or reor- 
ganizing the files in Dr. Eldridge's office, with a less 
amount of variation, we hope. 

Mary Kimball and Ed Hall tied for second place in 
this momentous event. For references in regard to the 
former, apply to President LeFavour or Thaddeus — it 
gets 'em all — and, in regard to the latter, think over a 
few small incidents like the Des Moines Drive, or Class 
Day, etc., etc., ad infinitum. 

Marie O'Connor is the third choice of the class for 
capable persons. With these examples before us, we 
should — oh, but it's very poor to force a moral upon one's 
readers. Let us be original and "leave it to the imagina- 
tion."

NEATEST 

"Still to be neat, still to be drest 
As you were going to a feast. ' 

So sings the poet, and if he is telling the truth, some of 
us will have to admit that we're only going to a Sunday 
school picnic, and having a "basket lunch," but as for 
Coon Willard, she'd do to sit at King George's right any 
day in the week. She is absolutely immaculate, flawless, 
"infalliable." 

Harry Gordon upholds the reputation of the day girls 
— whether by "them poil earrings," or the jazzy angle of 
the varied and sundry bits of headgear, we have thus far 
been unable to ascertain. And you'd rather expect Mary 
Moss to be pretty neat, wouldn't you? We've never in- 
vestigated the matter very thoroughly, but we understand 
that neatness is an indispensable aid to good housekeeping. 




BEST ATHLETE 

Without question the best athlete "in our midst" is Bob 
Joy. You can almost tell the seasons by Bob's impedi- 
menta when she dashes sportily through the sacred halls 
of our Alma Mater. Hockey sticks and tennis racquets 
seem to be a part of her make-up — just like her lovely 
"mangy" but "athleticky" brown sweater. Even such a 
ferocious implement as a javelin means no more to her 
than a shorthand pen, and we have a husky idea that, 
despite all the laws of "sociology," Bob would try ice- 
skating at the equator. 

Katie Van Nest won second place just as she wins in 
tennis and basketball and track, while Helen Oakes and 
Marie O'Connor tied for third position. 




207 




MOST TACTFUL 

We have the utmost confidence and faith that Mary 
Kimball never would send a wrist watch to the Venus 
de Milo. If there's any need for the application of 3 in 1 
or some similar lubricant to injured dignity or contusions 
and abrasions of the feelings, Mary's the girl who's there 
with the goods every time. 

Rache Farwell is "tactful," too — just how tactful, in 
fact, we'd hate to say — simply because it's been practised 
on us so often. 

Helen Ripley has the faculty of making everybody feel 
exceedingly comfortable. Some people may call it tact, 
but we regard it as a special dispensation of Providence! 
It's a wonderful feeling! 




WITTIEST 

Said a dashing young lady named Lilli, 
"I certainly must be quite silli, 

Though I give no inducement , 

When in need of amusement, 
Folks come running to me willy-nilli." 

Don't disparage yourself thus, my dear young lady. 
'Tis wit that you possesses — true wit — to conversation 
what tomato ketchup is to pork and beans. And, speaking 
of ketchup, Heinz himself has nothing on Lilli Lynch. 
You've got 57 varieties all your own, and a "line" that 
makes the Atlantic cable look like "40 cotton." Strength 
to your gift of gab! 

Marie O'Connor, the snappy, scintillating scientist, came 
in for a share of the honors attaching to true wit, and 
Ruth Giles of the swift and sagacious secretaries, had 
third place.

MOST DIGNIFIED 

From the vicinity of some five feet ten, with a superi- 
ority of knowledge, poise, and grace, Margaret Withing- 
ton looks down upon the mere "shadow shapes" of the 
rest of 1920. True dignity, we surmise, has never been 
farther away from her than the next minute. 

After this sentiment had been expressed by the class 
"in the usual manner" there were a few votes left. These 
went to Marion Peterson, who also "looks down," etc., 
and to Ruth Scully. 




MOST VERSATILE 

"Versatility" is a word that's a trifle out of our every- 
day vocabulary, but it seemed to be perfectly familiar to 
our "colleagues" when they voted Marie O'Connor the 
most versatile among a bevy of versatile creatures. For, 
with undue and unsuspected modesty, we admit the fact 
that, if it's good, we're probably "it." After much cogita- 
tion, and extended consultation with one gentleman, Web- 
ster by name, we have decided that versatility is simply a 
five-syllabled rendition of the homely old saying "turn 
your hand to 'most anything." And that's what Marie 
does all right. It's a long "jump" from science to foot- 
lights, with the only landing place the management of all 
the Student Government parties. 

Peg Milne ran Okie a close second for the honors in 
versatility. For four years Peg has done everything any- 
body asked her to, and generally made a success of it. 

Ed Hall had third place, and, incidentally, we want to 
say that that girl has one of the most versatile minds we 
have ever encountered. Count the breaks she makes in 
ten minutes and you'll get our point.

BEST DRESSED 

We suggest that Sylvia Mishel devote her future to a 
study of substitutes for German dyes, with especial em- 
phasis on something which will neutralize the deep green 
of envy that has seized upon the Secretarial School. Just 
how one mere human can manage to maintain a perfect 
professional grade, and, at the same time, look like a 
"million dollars" strolling carelessly up Fifth Avenue, is 
a constant source of wonder and amazement. Sylvia is, 
without doubt, considered the best-dressed girl in the 
class, but we mustn't stop without saying that Harry 
Gordon and Ed Hall, according to the 1920 "Bun and 
Dadstreet," are rated at about five hundred thousand 
apiece, on Forty-second Street and Broadway. 

"Oh, say not so, Florence, say not so!" Clothes don't 
make the girl. They're just as nice in — well — never mind. 




BEST ALL-ROUND 

Peg Milne is the best all-round girl in the class, though 
she used to be considerably "rounder" than she is at pres- 
ent writing. She can do anything — that girl — singing, 
dancing, swimming, tennis, hockey, but — we begin to 
sound like the press agent of a summer hotel. Peg's 
always ready to take a shot at something new, if we may 
lapse into the parlance of the proletariat. 

Mary Kimball came into second place as a sort of "gen- 
eral utility man," and all the rest of the votes went to 
Ed Hall.

BRIGHTEST 

How she "gets that way" is far beyond our feeble 
power to conceive, but truly, Midge Scott is the brightest 
thing, outside a Buffalo nickel, that we've ever seen. It 
seems to be a faculty of hers to know everything, and at 
the same time, not know it all. Rather subtle, that, but 
you get our meaning, don't you ? We wonder as we gaze 
from afar, in respect and admiration, if, in her dark and 
purple past, she wasn't one of those prodigies who spoke 
Greek fluently at the age of five. But we know she isn't 
all prodigy, when we see her on the hockey field. 

Marie O'Connor is "bright," too, in case you shouldn't 
have gathered it by this time, and really, all you have to 
do is talk to Beatrice Gilman to be bathed in a resplendent 
glow that gives you courage to go on, and restores your 
faith in the ultimate advance of the inner species. (For 
that last ambitious phrase, we are indebted to our common 
friend, Mr. Hayes, of sociological fame.) 




BUSIEST 

Greased lightning. Going 

Fast as "anything." 

A streak. A flash 

From the ethereal blue 

Like to a tail of 

A comet. Speed as of 

An Erie train. 

That's 

Dot Thornton — 

The busiest girl in Simmons. 

Oh, there are others. Midge Scott seems to have a 
good portion of her time occupied between the Review 
and MiC cuts, and stencils and outlines and, as a side 
issue, the corralling of those far-famed A's. 

Charlotte Burnes and Anna Manning are the other two 
busy girls in the class. 

N. B. — To the vast unrecognized multitude — the 
Senior class at large, but never at ease — "verily they shall 
have their reward."

BIGGEST TALKER 

Headline — De Palma forfeits his laurels. Speediest 
speed-king of the speedway outdistanced by Mildred 
Jacques, most voluble word-juggler extant. Net speed — 
incalculable. Trying to get a word in edgeways after 
Mildred gets a running start is a Herculean task, render- 
ing her who attempts it like unto a dishrag. 

Eleanor Lynott undoubtedly says more words to the 
minute than Dr.Eldridge when he loses himself in the bril- 
liant oratory of the Congressional Record, and that's going 
some. We'd hate to "take her" in shorthand, likewise 
Helen Oakes, whose volubility is exceeded only by the size 
of her feet. (We know positively that Oaksie's feet aren't 
abnormal, we're simply claiming poetic license.) 




MOST ORIGINAL 

Again Marie O'Connor "copped all the votes." Oh, 
wait a minute, we're writing for publication, and we 
should say "she obtained a majority of the ballots cast." 
Now we can proceed. 

She's the most original girl we know. Having already 
dilated to some extent on her ability to turn from the 
laboratory to the stage, etc., we can't very well carry that 
line any farther without designating our worthy subject 
as a grasshopper, and that would hardly be seemly. We 
don't see how she does it, but she do. 

Some few benighted souls seemed to think that Ruth 
Giles was original, but what few stray gleams of original- 
ity she might have once possessed have long since vanished. 
For information apply to D. Thornton, Editor of 
Microcosm. 

Lu Lapp is original all right when she starts with 
a "rag and a bone and a hank of hair" and evolves a 
stunning evening dress. To "orig" like that is the end 
and aim of our feeble existence.

BEST STUDENT 

The president of the Academy is, of course, our best 
student. Marjorie Sprague truly has never "left undone 
those things" — etc. So she's never embarrassed by going 
into a lit. exam, for example, and dilating in most eloquent 
and sympathetic manner upon the work of the foremost 
woman writer of the period, calling said authoress "he." 
Nor yet is she further inconvenienced by having called 
"pediculosis" a disease of the feet like fallen arches. Great 
must be the satisfaction thereof. 

You'd rather consider Marion Scott a "best student" 
when you look at her report — that is, if you don't succumb 
on the spot at the sight of so many A's all at once. Bea- 
trice Gilman, as another best student, can run herself and 
the Review at one and the same time, and keep both out 
of imminent peril. To do that successfully is our idea of 
an exceptional feat. 




BIGGEST BLUFFER 

"Well," as Mr. Hayes puts it, "there are three bluffers 
in the class of 1920." And that has already let the cat 
out of the bag. Of course Katink Damon walked away 
with the good husky vote cast in this event. Why not, 
when by a few simple "quips and cranks" of her fertile 
brain she becomes an authority on a variety of subjects 
ranging all the way from the libraries of Afghanistan on 
weekdays to the ingredients of white sauce on Saturday 
mornings ? 

Helen Ripley is the second biggest bluffer in our midst 
— "that is to say" she, too, has the — ah — felicity of — ah — 
expression that — ah — well, you know what we mean. 
Helen O'Neil came in on the home stretch for a share of 
the ability to "get away with it."

BEST NATURED 

You've heard of those vague indefinite articles known 
as "engaging smiles," haven't you? Well, for a living 
example look at "Gab." On the most painful of occa- 
sions — even vegetable hash for lunch — there has always 
been something to elicit that grin that is "but the outward 
evidence of a cheerful soul" (we like that delicate touch). 

Nobody could come within gunshot of Rache Farwell 
and not know that she was a prince as far as good nature 
goes. When she gets crabby — frayed and frazzled as to 
disposition — it's time to call a halt and reverse gears — 
sorta "fold up our tents and silently steal away," like. 

Elnora Blanchard, too, is one of those engaging crea- 
tures who is quite stranger to a "melancholy far-off mood." 
With her keeping Pete "sweet," and "Gab" and Rache 
managing the Dorms, we get along very nicely. Nope, 
the day girls don't need anybody. They have no strains 
on their dispositions — not even fishballs! 




MOST CONSCIENTIOUS 

"Conscience doth make cowards of us all" — all of us, 
that is, except Marion Eaton. For we voted her the most 
conscientious girl in the class, and we've never noted any- 
thing of the "lean and hungry" look about her. We used 
to have a conscience ourselves, long years ago, but since 
Izzy Jones has convinced us of the utter transiency of 
this life, said conscience has been steeped in profound 
slumber. 

Marjorie Sprague's conscience is running — no, not to 
seed — but to word-signs. We have heard rumors to the 
effect that it took the combined antics of "Gab" and 
Margaret Kingsley on Third Floor North to prevent 
Marj from writing perfect Pitmanic shorthand — because 
she's sport enough not to "miss anything" even if she does 
have to use the Sprague method occasionally in a transcript, 
transcript. 

Dot Boulding is also blessed with a lively conscience. 
Anyway, we're glad we've found out at last how it is she 
always "happens" to have things done!

HAIL to thee, blithe spirit, 
Speed king thou e'er wert, 
That from ninety or near it 

Pourest out thy heart 
Of frightful speed, in unexpected part. 

Faster and still faster 

From the start thou tickest; 
Like a grim task-master 

For me the speed thou fixest, 
And all the class dost drive 'til e'en the leader kickest. 

What thy speed I know not. 

What is worse than thee? 
For Mr. Haley's comet's tail 

So speedy could not be 
As when thou showerest on that class thy jazzy melody. 

Teach me, sprite or de'il, 

To keep up thy pace, 
For I never heard 

Of boat or auto race 
That panted forth such bursts of speed in such a little space. 

With thy clear, quick beating 

Languor cannot be, 
Cry of struggling maiden 

Is but naught to thee. 
Thou tickest on, and on, and on, and on, relentlessly. 

I scramble fore and after, 

And write down what is not. 
My most gallant effort 

Checks thee not one jot. 
My highest aim in life is keeping up to thee, I wot. 

Give me all the speed rules 

That thou e'er didst know 
So that perfect shorthand 

From my pen will flow, 
And they will stand and marvel, as I marvel at thee now.

Whose pen hath ne'er been known to cease, 
In letters, or most high-flown speech 
In Congress spoke, long ages past.

High is her speed — not one word missed, 

On 1 8 per she won't exist; 

For her no soup o'er gas jet cooked, 

But squab on toast's already booked. 

Living she'll merit great renown, 

And dying, have her name go down 

As one who done a noble deed — 

Got every transcript, on high speed.

A MIC IN THE MAKING 

M is for the meetings of Dot and her clan of vivisectionists. 

I is for the inquisition exacted by our Editor-in-Chief from her horde of 

quill-drivers, whom she accosts with a "deliver-the-goods" look. 
C is for the characters which it is our pleasant duty to distort into cari- 
catures. 
R is for the reports of work done weekly by the Board, which — well, ask 

the Editor if she ever saw one — she can take a joke ! 
O is for an occasional idea springing up without warning in the mind of 

some Board member, and resulting in an attack of phrases on the brain. 
C is for the careful, conscientious censorship of Mic material (to which we 

impute the mediocrity of the finished product). 
O is for the obligatory use of Webster by our Board; it also suggests onus, 

objurgation, and obloquy. 
S is for the sleepless nights passed by our Editor-in-Chief before and after 

the receipt of those long-delayed write-ups. 
M is for the martyrdom suffered by the year-book committees in general. 

We might add that it does not necessarily cease with the publishing of 

the book.

THE VISION OF SORE DOWNFALL 

WHAT is't can scare like a day in June? 
Then, if ever, come horrid days; 
Then the Faculty gathers to seal our doom, 
And the dread exams come to meet our gaze; 
Whether we've looked, or whether we've listened, 
We find that our notes are too few or missing; 
For a passing mark our lives we pay, 
One credit we buy with a whole night's tasking. 
'Tis flunk cards alone that are given away, 
'Tis only a "D" may be had for the asking; 
Now is the crisis of the year, 

And whatever we've learned that has ebbed away 
Comes back once again (though slowly, I fear) 
To reside in our minds for the space of a day. 
Now the brain is so full that a drop overfills it, 
We are all grinds now, for the Faculty wills it; 
No matter how much we have tried to sham, 
'Tis enough for us now that we've got to cram. 

"My massive Hayes now bring to me, 
And bring to me my word-signs stale, 
For tomorrow I hie me across the dump 
To face my doom, and I cannot fail ; 
Shall never a bed for me be spread, 
Nor shall a pillow be under my head, 
'Til I begin those notes to scan 
Which crown my desk in endless span. 
Perchance I'll have them half read through, 
Ere day create the world anew."

AT THE BOOK STORE 

WEARIED signing blanks at registration, 
With a pen that wouldn't write at all — 
In a state of mental perturbation 

I left the Students' Room, the noisy hall, 
And descended to the book store. 

Thus it was this fall at registration 

That I bought my Waterman's Ideal, it's called. 
If I'd known what pain and agitation 

Keeping track of one small pen would cause, 
It would still be in the book store. 

First I lost it — somewhere round the building — 
Asked three times a day at Information — 

Said it was a black pen — needed filling. 
Then, while in the throes of desperation, 
I found it — at the book store. 




225 



.DUB TME MOOKOEO^M Ulllg) 



Came February and those awful midyears. 

The gods were kind and still I had my pen, 
But the answers that it wrote for me those midyears 

Made me wish that I had left it 
(Then) in the book store. 

And the letters that for me my "Ideal" wrote 
Which to my father I have often sent, 

Read — "Dear Dad: I'm working hard, but 

Your daughter needs a check for books she meant 
To buy at the book store." 

But when I think of all the notes it's taken. 

Of all the theme and theses it's written, 
Although it's leaked — it's never quite forsaken 

This Simmons girl in work or in her fun, 
Nor has the book store.

THE SEVEN SIMMONS WONDERS 

I wonder when we'll get our Student-Alumnae Building? 

I wonder how many times I can cut that course and get by? 

I wonder if we'll ever have tablecloths again ? 

I wonder why everyone else passes and I flunk? 

I wonder if we can have Prom outside this year? 

1 wonder if finals will be as terrible as midyears were? 

I wonder if I'll ever get my degree? 




OF COURSE YOU KNOW WHO THIS IS !

UPON DOING WRITE-UPS 

Having been duly 
Thrust upon the "Mic" Board 
You are informed that it is 
"Part of your duties 
To do write-ups. 
The names are given you — 
You look them over. 
Out of the seventeen you see 
Four names that you are familiar with. 
You know three of the seventeen to speak to. 
You shut yourself up in your room, 
Open last year's "Mic" 
And look over the write-ups. 
How good they are! 
You never realized what a gem 
Each one was. 

You take one of the names you have been given 
And, supplied by the fact that 
The girl sleeps a lot and is fond of sodas, 
You endeavor to write something clever about her. 
After the sixteenth attempt 
You take another name. 

Ah — this girl is engaged — she should be easy to write up. 
You make several awfully flat remarks. 
They all have been used for the last three years. 
You give her up. 

One more glance at last year's book. 
Oh — quotations ! ! ! 

You spend two perfectly good hours 
Getting quotations. 

You jot down ten especially good ones, 
Then you look at 19 19's "Mic" again. 
Out of the ten you have, eight were used last year. 
Friend family then comes in one at a time 
And inquire as to what you are doing. 
They don't in the least understand 
What a write-up is. 
You don't yourself. 
What's that? 
Supper ready — 
Another good day gone!

"So Nice and Fresh and Cool" 

A Vassar girl, writing home, said : 

"We are going to have a Hallowe'en spread here Friday night, and 
Orange Jell-0 is to be served for the dessert. 

"Jell-0 is so different from fudge and gingersnaps and the other 
things we eat all the time — so nice and fresh and cool to relieve the 
monotony." 

There are six pure fruit flavors of Jell-O: 
Strawberry, Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, Cherry, 
Chocolate. 

Little folders in Jell-0 packages contain all the 
instructions anyone needs in making the "made-in-a- 
minute" Jell-0 dainties, but we shall be glad to send 
you the fine new Jell-0 Book if you will favor us with 
your address.
